Why am I sometimes asked to enter a shipment number, and sometimes a container number?

For transport by ferry (via a ferry terminal) it is possible to request the status for a given shipment ID (which is why you are asked for a shipment number). For the connected shortsea and other terminals, the information can be requested for a specific container (which is why you are asked for a container number).

Shipment numbers of ferry-operators have the following format (SCAC + bookingnumber + sequence number):

CLDN: CLVW0012345678001

DFDS/KVSA: DFDS123456780001

P&O: PONFHU12345678001

Stena Line: STNL0012345678001
